If you want to achieve nineties geek chic style on the cheap, check out this glossy white Casio digital watch (F-108WHC-7ACF). This affordable men’s watch offers a few useful functions like date, stopwatch and timer. 

There are a couple different white Casio digital watches. I chose the one with the black display instead of the one with the gray display. The contrast makes it stand out a little more. With a white resin case and strap, it is more likely to show wear than the black Casio watches that are more common. 

It’s light and comfortable enough to wear all day. If you’re looking for a watch that’s equally suited for the dark, you may want a TImex Weekender, which has a great lume. This Casio’s backlight is pretty cheesy.

What I love about this watch is the nineties nostalgia, the comfort and the fact that its so inexpensive. I enjoy wearing it and never have to worry about destroying it because it’s so cheap. Overall, it’s absolutely worth the price.
